Hi friends <img src="http://www.posetteforever.com/images/smiles/group.gif" alt="" /> <br /> <br /> I paste a message that I received from the hosting provider where Posetteforever is located, in Germany. It looks like the version of the code of the site won't be supported anymore after the end of October. <br /> <br /> Well, it's time to migrate on another software or an updated version of the software. I would like to to take the occasion for doing some changes, mine and yours. I would like a site that can be smartphone compatible and more connected to the social networks. <br /> <br /> The main problem is that I forgot everything about programming the code of the site: here there are hundreds of hours spent in changes and modifications and it will take time to understand all, again, and transfer it on a different software. <br /> <br /> I'll probably move the software to a different hosting, here the cost rose to 67 euros per year and it is too much for a little site, I'll see what's on the market. <br /> <br /> If you've some ideas or know new software that can be used, your suggestion are welcome. <br /> <br /> <br /> Dear Mr Clerici <br /> <br /> We at Hetzner Online are writing to inform you that all support for PHP <br /> versions 4 and 5.2 will be discontinued for all web hosting accounts and <br /> managed servers starting on 31 October 2017. Please double-check to see <br /> whether or not you are currently using either of these versions on any <br /> of your accounts. If you still have scripts that require you to use <br /> these versions, then you have time until the above deadline to adjust <br /> your scripts. <br /> <br /> PHP itself stopped providing support for PHP 4 starting on 7 August <br /> 2008, and it stopped support for PHP 5.2 on 6 January 2011. In order to <br /> ensure that your accounts remained secure in the past, we at Hetzner <br /> Online integrated security updates from new PHP versions into the <br /> outdated versions. Unfortunately, this is very strenuous, time-consuming <br /> work. More importantly, since versions 4 and 5.2 are extremely outdated, <br /> it is no longer possible for us to guarantee the security of accounts <br /> which use these versions. For this reason, we must discontinue support <br /> for these versions for the forseeable future. <br /> <br /> Starting on 31 October 2017, all calls to the outdated versions of PHP <br /> will automatically be directed to the next-highest version of PHP, <br /> version 5.3.

Sheesh... <br /> <br /> That's going to be a big, big jump. <br /> <br /> Sorry, can't help. Gave up BASIC coding when Windows made fun-stuff hard, dabbled in Python, never learned Java... <br /> == <br /> Still too exhausted post-'flu to assemble my CAD PC. Quite literally, I can't focus for long enough to try...

Well, it looks like php 5.3 can be run by Posetteforever <img src="http://www.posetteforever.com/images/smiles/eusa_shifty.gif" alt="" /> <br /> <br /> Anyway, I think it's better to update to some last version of PhPBB (our old, heavily modified software), even because I'm starting to use my personal cloud service on the free space of the server (more than 50 GB free...) <br /> <br /> I'll start to build it on a subdirectory and see how it works. <br /> <br /> Essentially we need a forum and a gallery, hte other parts of the site are almost unused. <br /> <br /> I'm also searching an integration to the social netwroks (for example optional facebook login) <br /> <br /> I'll slowly start to do it. <br /> <br /> P.S. If you see only the header of the site is because I'm working on it, I need to change the version of php from 5.4 to 7.1 . It will last only few hours and the site will go back to normal.

On a side note I see that I started the site on March 2003 <img src="http://www.posetteforever.com/images/smiles/eusa_shifty.gif" alt="" /> <br /> Well, I'm getting old...

<img src="http://www.posetteforever.com/images/smiles/JC_howdy.gif" alt="" /> Hi Davide my friend <br /> <br /> "Well, I'm getting old..." ... well, that's me. too <img src="http://www.posetteforever.com/images/smiles/wink.gif" alt="" /> <br /> <br /> This is why I don't have FB, and seem to be able to survive, anyway. <br /> <br /> I'm not planning in diving in there, so you cannot count on me managing related features. <br /> <br /> That said, it's nice to see you, still willing to keep this place alive <img src="http://www.posetteforever.com/images/smiles/group.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.posetteforever.com/images/smiles/biggrin.gif" alt="" />

Hi Andreas, as far as I know the feature means that a facebook user can login using its facebook account directly, nothing else.

I tried if a fast conversion was possible with the embedded converter <img src="http://www.posetteforever.com/images/smiles/ayeah.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.posetteforever.com/images/smiles/ayeah.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.posetteforever.com/images/smiles/ayeah.gif" alt="" /> <br /> <br /> AAAND.... <br /> <br /> It didn't work <img src="http://www.posetteforever.com/images/smiles/very_sad.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.posetteforever.com/images/smiles/very_sad.gif" alt="" /> obviously... <br /> <br /> It means a manual conversion... <br /> <br /> We'll see in some months <img src="http://www.posetteforever.com/images/smiles/biggrin.gif" alt="" />
